Employer of excellence certification for your careers website. Q-Certification is a "badge" for your website that indicates a mark of excellence and honor in recruiting. Q-Certification promotes candidate goodwill and confidence, and it identifies your company as a participant in the sustainable and open recruitment movement. By proudly displaying the Q-Certification badge on your website (career and / or company websites), you tell the world that your company is helping the community around you to recruit and be recruited, and you are engaged in the sharing of resources and knowledge to help build a more open and sustainable recruitment environment. Only those companies that are members of AllianceQ and participate in the programs are eligible to display the Q-Certification badge.

Open Skies

Helping the candidates our members cannot hire, find other employment opportunities. Open Skies is a candidate referral program that helps the many millions of candidates that our members simply cannot hire, connect with and be found for other employment opportunities.

Open Skies is a vendor-neutral Open Talent Network program, where candidates can opt-in to be part of a very large and anonymous candidate database, where other AllianceQ members and thousands of other employers can easily find and hire them.

Unlike other imitation candidate networks that have followed in the wake of AllianceQ, which are closed vendor-centric technologies and programs designed to lock-in candidates and employers, Open Skies is built on an open and shared principle that is open to any employer, vendor, technology and candidate, and requires no technology integration or purchase for any employer or candidate to participate.

Open Skies is the leading Open Talent Network providing millions of candidates with fair and equal ways to connect with any employer.

Open Skies provides:

  • Elegant ways to communicate with all candidates
  • Employer brand protection
  • Improved candidate experience
  • Increased candidate referrals

Because candidates are customers too!

Workforce 2020

Building public / private partnerships and connecting to local, state and federal unemployed programs. Workforce 2020 is a workforce initiative that harnesses the power of our members and the thousands of other employers in the AllianceQ Open-Talent Network, and connects them to the local unemployed / underemployed who participate in local, state or federally funded training and employment programs. Workforce 2020 is an end-to-end workforce solution that enables government or private workforce agencies to capture, manage and evolve workforce candidates into job-ready candidates, and disseminate their information out to the thousands of employers in the AllianceQ Open Talent Network who are searching for candidates each and every day. The outcome is that the workforce agencies can now connect with and share resources with each other, and every employer in the AllianceQ Open Talent Network is now able to work with and hire from their local workforce talent pool from the one system. Workforce 2020 is implemented for the entire country of New Zealand, for the city of Milwaukee and in other Workforce Investment Boards and private workforce organizations in the mid-west.
